    Hi, not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question but here goes:

    What tax rate are profits earned in my trading account (individual) taxed at? say most of it comes from premiums received for calls and puts sold in the account. Is it just at my ordinary income rate? Or can any of it be at the capital gains rate? Thanks in advance!
